Father of the Year Essay Contest Underway
The Daily Chronicle is happy to announce that the annual Father of the Year Essay Contest is now underway. All contestants are urged to send their essays to the Daily Chronicle as quickly as possible.
The rules of the contest are very simple.
In your own words just state why your father should be chosen as Father of the Year.
Marcia's nominating letter:

. . . He is always fair and tries to be a real father to both his three sons and his three new daughters. My dad should be father of the year for hundreds of reasons. . . . and Dad doesn't even play golf every weekend so he can spend more time with his family. . . . and even though he's only been my dad for a short time, no father could be a realer father than Michael Brady. . . . even when he punishes me it's because I deserve it.
Yours sincerely,
Marcia Brady
